Food Field Trip: Anna's Taqueria

We spent this weekend on a whirlwind trip through New England, which entailed (in order): a flight into Providence, a night with friends and their beautiful children in the Boston area, a wedding in Cape Cod, and a babyshower on the New Hampshire border. But no trip to--or in the case, merely through--Boston would be complete without a stop at Anna's. And I can't believe we fit it in, but we did just that. Though this did result in a very close call catching our return flight, it was entirely worth it.

This is not the first time I have written about my all-time favorite burrito joint so I won't repeat the basics. What I will say is I have never found a fresher and tastier burrito value anywhere else, ever.


The prices range from $4-7 and the choices include (among other things) flavorful carnitas and a selection of fresh chopped and grilled vegetables such as carrots, corn, red/yellow/green peppers, eggplant, onions zucchini, and squash.

While the burritos are not especially photogenetic, the melding of flavors is perfect. And the more I think about why I like Anna's burritos more than Chipotle, I think the key is both the way they steam the cheese and the tortilla together and the homemade hot sauce. The salsa and pork-fat rice don't hurt either.

For fountain diet coke fanatics in the area, the Porter Square location in Cambridge has in my estimation the best diet coke.

  1. I last visited Anna's a month and a half ago, and have to say that nothing has changed in the past 10yrs that I've been frequenting this solid establishment. Ok, so price may have gone up, but by cents (not dollars). It is still the best cheap eats in Boston!
